to have one last meeting. the other saying he thinks president obama wants to go over the fiscal cliff. chris, what do you think's going to happen? >> up till thursday, when the house voted down or didn't vote but obviously they didn't have the votes even to take up plan b i thought this was washington jockeying and posturing. but after boehner's plan b went down without a vote, i think there's a chance we could go over the cliff. you could see it in the markets on friday when they went down 120 points and could go down more next week. brasso thanks we're going over the cliff and conrad is saying, because he's not happy with the obama pair down plan to extend the tax cuts below $250,000 and extend unemployment. he wants to split the difference between the last offers boehner and the president made before plan b. i think that's a tough road to hoe and what this will come down to is your going to be asking republicans to rejected raising taxes on people below $1 million to now accept -- i mean extended bush tax cuts below $1 million to extend only to 250,000. they would have to tak

. gentlemen, president obama tonight said he had spoken with speaker boehner in addition to meeting with senate majority leader harry reid. >> i just spoke to speaker boehner, and i also met with senator reid. in the next few days, i've asked leaders of congress to work toward a package that prevents a tax hike on middle-class americans, protects unemployed for 2 million americans and lays the groundwork for deficit reduction. that's an achievable goal. that can get done in ten days. once this legislation's agreed to, i expect democrats and republicans to get back to washington and have it pass both chambers. >> jared bernstein, is this actually a setback for the president insofar as the embarrassed speaker was someone at least with whom he was dealing and now the president really doesn't have a negotiation partner? >> i don't think so. i do think in a way it's a setback for the nation because the president and speaker boehner were actually moving to a credible, plausible compromise at the very beginning of the week. and, of course, that's horribly off track now when john boehner decided

doesn't seem like they were getting anywhere. it was an icy relationship between speaker obama and the president in the last meeting. how do they get to what you do with the unions? you sit down with the union guys. >> and we solve the problem. 99% of the time we solve the problem. one of the problems is norquist. you can't make a contract with congress to do it your way. i think norquist has to go away. >> well what should be done? what type of plan would you like to see? how do we stop the spending and at the same time get everything out of control to right the ship? >> i think the americans should be outraged. they should call their congressmen and write to them and say how can you take off when we are ready to fall off the cliff? i think we are going to fall of on the cliff. i think -- >> what does it mean if we fall off the cliff? >> i think the stock market could have an adverse reaction which could create a barnyard opportunity for some people who have the courage. but courage is hard to acquire sometimes. >> and bo the tom line -- and bottom line, if they don't have an agre
